...walking the cats...

...on a beautiful frosty morning... ...not a car in sight...
...so I may have some fun...


Thought I'd give you a couple of links for some Christmaswritings and -fun...
BrittArnhild writes daily about the meaning of advent, and she also has an adventblog for kids( sorry, Norwegian only...) here.
Melanie also post daily- look at that himmeli she made!
And of course- just like last year- Drops/Garnstudio has a Christmascalendar, also availible in english...
Have a nice day:-)

Morning Marit, thanks for the shout out. We're now inside the castle walls on our Medieval Fair trip to Ludlow.

Your sheep are so pretty. Most of the sheep in the UK are white as that is the colour of wool the British Markating board will buy. Very bad for home spinners and knitters.

Love the cat walk! LOL

What a long, nice cat-walk ;D Jeg var så vidt innom Garnstudio her om dagen (på leting etter 'gammeldagse' heklegardiner/-kapper til kjøkkenet, men fant ingen). Bra du minte meg på kalenderen! Nå har vi fått litt snø i Drøbak også! Klem

Det er akkurat som å se katten(e) min(e) som diltet med før i tiden når jeg gikk tun med hunden! I dag da jeg kom hjem fra jobben kom lille Sofie jumpende mot meg i snøen, hun må ha hørt på skrittene at det var meg! Hun hadde ikke sjans til å se meg.... Eller...eh hem.... kan det tenkes at jeg snakket med meg selv ;))

Klemzzz!!!

Tror det er første gag jeg ser noen som går tur med kattene ;)
Ha ei finadventstid!

Wonderful photos. Thanks for the links.

Britt-Arnhild said...

Takk for linkene Marit. Jeg trenger all hjelp jeg kan få til å spre informasjon om Lys Våken kalenderen.

Loving that kitty cat walk, Marit! Our Charlie loves being outside...be he won't follow long, he goes off and does his own thing--LOL! Thank you for the link...I've been to Britt-Arnhild's, and am always amazed what she does! :o) Happy Days ((HUGS))

Caroline said...

Cat walk (LOL) It just makes me laugh to say it. I remember my daughter's first cat would follow her to school for a block or so. We thought that was so "un-cat-like.

Thanks for the Gardstudio link. I love their calendar.

Melanie said...

Hia again Marit. I have a little something on my blog for you. Your lace shawls are so amazing.

Susan said...

Just saw the beautiful lace shawl you gave Britt-Arnhild on her blog. You do such fantastic work. I know I will enjoy your blog also. Susan

Hi Marit,
I came to your blog through Britt-Arnhilds Blog. Thank you for the song "Autumn Leaves" from Eva Cassidy. I liked it immediately. In earlier times (when I was young) I used to play the guitar and sing such kind of songs. This one I didn't know.- Ultimately, I started knitting (socks) again -you can see some of them in my photo blog "my sense of place".Apart of this, I'm drawing and painting and trying to learn a little Norwegian...Did you knit that wonderful shawl on Britt-Arnhilds blog? It's fantastic.

Just wanted to say that when I came to your blog today, "Falling Leaves" by Eva Cassidy was playing, one of my all time favorites, and something I play in the car on almost every longish trip!

I sat next to a man wearing a nice Norwegian sweater at a dinner for school the other night -- he takes a trip to Norway every two years, and has lots of relatives there, mostly on the west side. I almost said, "Well, I know somebody who lives on the west side of Norway where it is really lovely," but I didn't -- hard to explain the whole blogging phenomena to somebody who isn't into it :-)

Haha.. Kattene dine er herlige! Ligger noe lurt til deg i bloggen min ;) God jul!

Your cat walk looks great - although they look like their toes are getting cold!!
